Local church history is important. What great thinkers have written and what denominational bodies have declared in resolutions and organizational ministries are important, but "lived religion" at the ground level provides a fuller picture of the story of the Christian faith. The fifty-year (1967-2017) story of Northminster Baptist Church in Jackson, Mississippi, is one of those narratives that richly adds to our understanding of how faith has been lived in a particular setting.

Baptists in the South, rapidly rising to challenge Methodists numerically helped align Southern religion with the South's black slave culture. The birth of the Southern Baptist Convention in 1945, formed in order to preserve God's will for the African race, signaled the inevitability of war. This book explores the myriad of ways in which Baptists in Middle Georgia helped shape history before, during, and after the Civil War.

Father Mercer tells the story of the life and labors of Jesse Mercer, a leader in Georgia Baptist life during the first half of the nineteenth century.

Francis Johnson and the English Separatist Influence
By author: K Scott Culpepper

Product Code: P426
ISBN: 9780881462388
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Francis Johnson and the English Separatist Influence is the first thorough treatment of Francis Johnson as the central focus of an academic work. Francis Johnson’s quest to create a perfectly ordered, scriptural, Christian congregation led him to fiery debates with the most influential leaders of his day. A curious mix of the noble and ignoble, Francis Johnson was a man of contradictions. Johnson’s own journey from radical Puritan to fervent Separatists, and finally rediscovery of the importance of reconnecting with the larger Christian tradition is one that vitally speaks to our current pluralistic context.

In Subjection: Church Discipline in the Early American South, 1760–1830
By author: Jessica Madison
Product Code: H890
ISBN: 9780881465006
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
This study of church discipline cases describes a system of subjection with obligations for all--men, women, parents, children, masters, and servants. Although many historians have mistaken this for "oppression," most Southerners accepted the idea of "subjection," regarding it as a divinely ordained system for their mutual governance and benefit. Complete with a map and statistical tables, this book argues that church discipline bound everyone together in mutual subjection to a shared code of conduct rather than empowering white men exclusively with a position of authority over others.
